Following my passing comment about Google Health last week, I thought you might be interested to watch this 50 minute video of Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt addressing the HIMSS conference in February. Amongst other interesting things, he points out how slowly doctors are realising what impact the internet is having – and will have – on healthcare delivery, and what Google is trying to do about it. (Google also likes the ‘predict and prevent’ approach.)
The video includes a demo of Google Health and its potential for linking to other systems. I predict that remote health monitoring companies that get in early to link their health monitoring systems are going to have a huge advantage.
Thanks to Bob Pyke for the heads-up on this one.
